Did being on Jeopardy! have any affect on your life?
I've become known at work as the person to ask if you need an answer to an obscure question, although of course I don't always know the answer.

Did you do anything crazy with your winnings?
Other than driving through a snowstorm to deposit the check, because I was nervous about waiting, not really.
